Horned Frogs may play Clemson University next season

The Frogs are attempting to improve the strength of their non-conference schedule by adding a second team from the Atlantic Coast Conference to their schedule.

A South Carolina newspaper is reporting the Frogs have agreed in principle to play Clemson University this upcoming football season.

According to a story published on The State’s Web site Thursday, multiple sources have confirmed the Frogs will fill the Tigers’ empty slot in their schedule, Sept. 26, originally slated to be Central Michigan University.

Calls and e-mails made to TCU athletics director Danny Morrison and director of athletic media relations Mark Cohen were not returned at the time of publication.

The story reports that a contract is expected to be signed Friday and an official announcement could come soon afterward.

Currently the Frogs’ non-conference schedule will include a road game against the University of Virginia, also of the ACC, and home games against longtime rivals Southern Methodist University and Texas State University.
